Black Garlic, Whole Bulbs / lb
This is one of the most unique ingredients around. Black garlic is a type of caramelized garlic first used as a food ingredient in Asian cuisine. It is made by heating whole bulbs of garlic over the course of several weeks, with the humidity and temperature at exact specifications, a process that results in black cloves. The taste is sweet and syrupy with hints of balsamic vinegar or even tamarind. It has a tender, almost jelly-like texture with a consistency similar to a soft dried fruit. Think jujube, but without the stickiness.
Add it with soy sauce to make a flavorful stir fry. Use it to season soups. Mash it into cheese dip, cream cheese or potatoes. Blend it with mayo or hummus. Thinly slice cloves and add them to salads or pasta dishes. Use them as a topper for pizza. There are unlimited opportunities to use this creative ingredient.
It is not a substitute for regular garlic but has its own distinct flavour. The black garlic has nearly twice as many antioxidants as raw garlic. It also contains the natural compound, S-Allycysteine. Black Garlic can be stored for 3-6 months in a refrigerator.
